3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crushed with Honkeybra at GABF. Not a very big strong ale, but still has plenty of flavor. Very excellent hop presence, especially in the finish. A nice, bitter finish. Dug it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Pale, ugly copper colored pour with a small head. Mushroom, grain, lemon aroma. Fizzy body, kind of harsh, with mushroom, earth, and carrot flavors. American Strong Ale? Not really. Dull as hell.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) Poured golden and lightly hazy. Beer had medium sized and white head. Aroma was dominated by grassy hops. Medium bodied and dry palate had medium carbonation. Beer tasted of malts, grassy hops and bitterness. Bitter aftertaste. Reminded a lot of a pils.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color and a little hazy. Subdued malt characteristic. Fruity and citrusy, yet smooth. It is a session beer.

Pretty solid beer. Had some on tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a nice amber hue with a slight off-white head. Nose of hops and mild fruitiness. Flavor is well balanced between with nice malt and hop presence. Good, clean finish.
